El Gato Negro cottage
for two people in Capileira
Full description • Direct booking • Photos • Video • Availability
Completely restored, retaining its thick chestnut beams and other wood features, El Gato Negro has lots of character and an ideal location just below the quiet main square.
Café-bars and restaurants with terraces, bakeries, small supermarkets, bank and parking are all close by, yet the street is traffic-free, save for a few people and the occasional goat. The street broadens to a quiet corner where the house is situated.
Guests often sit out here in the sun, or in the shade of the fresno tree. No one hurries much in Capileira.
Walks in La Alpujarra start from your front doorstep with a path up the Poqueira Gorge and down to the river.
